What Lucy Wore: Lindybop Ophelia dress from Nyla Rose

Hi Launderette's hope you're all well!
I've been pretty busy being a grown up so I've not been blogging as much recently.
But I'm still happy to pick it up here and there,
and who knows, I might get right into it again!

Anyway the purpose of todays post is,
I was lucky enough to be sent a gorgeous vintage style dress from Nyla Rose
I don't know if you've heard of them, but they stock a whole range of cute vintage style
clothing, accessories and home ware.
I actually first came across them on facebook (they run amazing competitions FYI)

I was sent this fabulous Red Ophelia Dress, by Lindy Bop (RRP £45)
Unfortunately when it arrived it was too big for me,
but I knew of the perfect girl for the modelling job......

Introducing the lovely Lucy,
the amazing baking beauty from Delicate Bakes ltd in Great Malvern!

I'm a 12 to 14 on top, so ordered the 14 as it looked quite fitted.
It was pretty baggy and unflattering on me, the 12 would have been fine.
Lucy here is a 14-16 on top and the 14 (as you can see!)
fits her perfectly,and hugs in all the right places :)
So if you are in doubt about size, go down.

Its a great midi length, the fabric is lovely quality and has a nice amount of weight and stretch.
It would be great to wear to any posh occasion, such as a ball, prom or wedding.
Its such a flattering shape, nips in at the waist, and skims over the hips and bum!
The colour is gorgeous, but this dress comes in a whole host of prints and hues.

The dress also has great movement!
We put a white tulle underskirt under ours to puff it out a tiny bit,
and if you sway or dance it really looks amazing.

Overall both me and Lucy were really impressed with both the dress and the service from Nyla Rose

I'd definitely buy from them myself, and cant recommend them highly enough.

Have you tried anything from Nyla Rose or Lindybop?

Let me know what you think in the comments :)

Bye for now,
